A to Z Blogging Challenge: U is For Unicorns

Here is a couple of Unicorns from my collection. The little dragon hatching from the egg is what my husband bought for me when I was pregnant with my daughter 21 years ago. I bought those two Unicorns about a month later.

I used to have a huge collection of Unicorns but when moved 6 times in 10 years because of hubby's work and a lot of them broke or got lost but these two always found their way with me. 

These two are my favorite from this collection. I've started other collections but they always seem to fizzle out. 

Things like:
Stamps- I started and after a while got bored with it. 
Dragons- bought two and it got expensive so is two statues considered a collection?
Bookmarks- Yeah that's more of an obsession at this point. I have about 1000 of them now. 
Pens- Yeah there's another obsession (maybe I need to see Dr. Phil) I have about 100 Author swag pens.
Unicorns- I still have 10 Unicorns and I do consider that a collection. 
Books- I have about 2000 books on my shelves at the moment. Hubby thinks I'm a few books away from being on an episode of Hoarders. 

Added: Here's a blog post I made with pictures of some of the books in my collection. Book Collection

Do you collect anything?


  1. I don't collect anything as of yet, but intend on collecting books and wristwatches.

    I would love to come visit you and your husband some day just to see the 2000 books that you guys have collected :-)

  2. Love that little dragon. I used to collect stamps as a kid. I have quite a big T-shirt collection. I wear T-shirts a lot.

  3. they look great, I barely collect anything at all.

  4. I used to collect unicorns when I was little. I was actually a fan of anything horse-related, or horse-like, as well as dogs and cats. I still have some of my old unicorns. I've always been a big fan of Chinese dragons, but only if they are really special. My mom and I have sort of a shared collection of these -- she was the one who made me a fan. :)
